Last night the Planning Commission narrowly approved the environmental impact report for Lennar's massive Hunters Point development. This was clearly not an easy decision: while Redevelopment approved the thing unanimously, Planning was split 4-3 -- a better representation of the
peevedconcerned neighbors who point to the difficulties of cleaning up such a toxic area. Still, at a time like these, the promise of jobs means more than the promise of pollution. Said Planning Prez Ron Muguel, "This project has a long way to go? And it's about time it got started." Brace yourselves, NIMBYs, this one is going to take a while -- and Lennar is here to stay.
